Having played with often scrutinised superstar Paul Pogba for two seasons at Manchester United, veteran forward Zlatan Ibrahimovic has spoken about his personal experience of working with the Frenchman.
The Swede joined the Red Devils in 2016 in the same transfer window that saw Jose Mourinho lure Pogba back to Old Trafford from Juventus.
The two big personalities connected immediately on and off the field, becoming close friends in their private lives.
With Pogba often coming under fire for his performances with the club, Ibrahimovic believes his former teammate is someone who needs to be managed carefully.
"Paul Pogba, I had never played with him before and I didn't know him as a person," he told BBC Sport.
"We have the same management and when I got to know him I got to find a fantastic person and a fantastic footballer, but someone who needs to be guided.
"He is a professional guy that works every game and never misses training or a game. Those are all the things that people do not see, you only get judged by what you can see on television or the 90 minutes in the stadium, that's where you have to perform.
"When you click with someone it just clicks. The connection on the field was amazing, we helped each other very well, I needed him and he needed me. The first year at United we had a fantastic year."
Pogba has been linked with a return to the Bianconeri in recent weeks, while Barca are also said to be interested in securing his services should he decide to leave United.
